Being Retreat

A Yoga & Writing Virtual Day Long Retreat

PRACTICE WRITE NOW

 

You want to write. You think, someday, I will write that story, create that blog, start that essay. But writing gets shoved under the demands of everything else. 

Writing takes practice. And to keep writing, takes the right kind of support. A little structure helps. And a good prompt can make all the difference.

I created this course for anyone who wants to write but needs a little get up and go. It’s simple: For ten days, show up exactly as you are and write for ten minutes. I will provide five prompts and five mini-practices. We will share our work with the group (which is purposefully small). We will respond to each other’s work (in gentle, encouraging ways).

You will leave these ten days with a regular writing practice that is sustainable, simple and will yield content you care about.
 

What you get:

  • A confidential Facebook group reserved for sharing our work and feedback

  • Five prompts in your inbox alternating with . . .

  • Five specially curated audio mini-yoga and meditation “prompt” practices

  • Poems/readings to keep you leaning into the language you love.

  • The freedom to write anytime of the day ten minutes for ten days (no scheduled meetings needed!)
     

What this group provides?

  • Accountability: You need others to hold you to show up daily and practice writing.

  • Structure: You want some awesome prompting to help you generate ideas.

  • Community (aka audience): You want to share your work with  others, listen to gentle feedback, and make heartfelt connections.

  • Practice (not perfection): You need to get out of your spinning mind and gain access to your body.  You need to be free of worrying about edits or rewrites and just show up and trust your voice.

Is this group for me?

This group is for anyone who is looking to start, to continue or to cultivate a daily writing practice without the pressure or attachment of the work needing to be perfect or even finished. This is also perfect for anyone who wants to generate new  material for future projects be it a blog, an article, or something you have yet to create!

THE SLOW ROAST

 

Have you heard yourself say I wish I could keep up my writing practice but it’s not the time. I don’t have time. I have so many other things to do. 

Writing feels like the least pressing matter.  And yet , 

You love to write, you want to write. 

You have ideas. Words. Stories to tell. You just don’t have the time to make it happen every day.

Well, it doesn’t have to be every day.

 

But what about once or twice a week?

 

Join me for a course designed to keep your writing practice alive amidst a busy, demanding life.

 

A super slow, relaxed 4 week writing group.

 

What you get:

  • Structure: 2 original prompts per week: Monday and Friday

  • Community: A special secret group for connecting and sharing (limited to 12 people). 

  • Support: Personal feedback and guidance
    Inspiration: Conversation about craft and inspiring readings to cherish 

 

Is this group right for me?

If you participated in Practice Write More and want to simply maintain a connection to writing and sharing but don’t think you have the time to write every day for ten days. Or you need more time between prompts to process, then you will feel right at home.

THE EXPRESS

 

Jump start yourself into a manageable five days to write, share, connect and feed the writer you are.
 

What you Get:

  • Structure: A new special prompt each morning for five days

  • Accountability: A private writing circle to belong and share

  • Community support: Daily feedback, guidance, support, accountability. 

  • Inspiration: A total reset for your creative voice


Is this group right for me?

If you are looking to dive into a quick five days to write this is perfect. This is all about showing up, writing for short bursts and feeling safe to share what comes out.Think reset, reignite and remember how much you love to write. Sharing is a big part so if you are a reluctant sharer consider working with me one on one or look into my other courses that span over longer periods of time.

FLASH MEMOIR

 

You see the scene. 

You create the words in your mind.

Your past, your childhood, your relationship, the divorce, the children, the illness, the loss, the job, the day to day way you have lived and breathed and noticed things.

Things that tell a story. Your story.

Someday, you say, I will sit down and start to write my story.

And I say, why not sit yourself down, and write the very first words?

 

If you are pulled to write memoir then this group is your best friend (or your favorite Aunt).

What you get: 

  • Five prompts. (One per week)

  • A top secret online writing community. (limited to 10).

  • Feedback galore (from me and from your fellow writers). 

  • One zoom group call where we can see the faces behind the words and discuss our writing. And to talk about writing in general. 

  • Inspirational readings/recordings throughout to supplement your craft and conversation.
     

Is this group right for me? 

If you are pulled to write memoir then yes.
This group will specifically focus on short pieces of original writing (800 words or less).
You have several days each week to work on writing and refining and distilling your pieces down to their essence with support, guidance and love.
